ERBIL — A high-level delegation from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) will visit Sulaymaniyah to hold separate meetings with the Kurdistan Patriotic Union (PUK) and Change Movement (Gorran).
The KDP delegation, led by Fazil Mirani, Secretary of KDP Politburo, will discuss coordination and shared plans for the Kurdish political parties in the post-election Iraqi politics.
The meeting comes after Iraq’s Electoral Commission announced the uncertified official results of the parliamentary elections held last week on Sunday.
The KDP consolidated its position as the largest Kurdish party after winning 33 seats at the next Iraqi parliament, while the PUK secured only 16 seats and Gorran won zero.
The Kurds, including the KDP, are hoping to form a united front in order to be able to protect the rights of the Kurdistan Region in the future government of Iraq which will be formed by a new prime minister after he will receive confidence from a clear majority of the parliament.
